If you’re headed to the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center for tonight’s premiere of The Nutcracker, you’ll be the first to see first of two new Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen cafes that will be part of the complex. The first to open will be on the second level; a first floor cafe will open in the spring. You’ll be able to buy espressos and specialty coffees, hot chocolate, Irish coffee, and Santa’s White Christmas Eggnog, with or without Bailey’s Irish Cream. (I recommend with; I’ve seen many, many productions of The Nutcracker. In fact, make it a double.)
You’ll also find some sweets, including BCK macarons, biscotti and blondies (but no sugar plums).
It’s nice to see our hometown Barnie’s CoffeeKitchen become part of the DPAC concessions.
